Itinerary

Day 1Kangerlussuaq, Greenland | Cross the Arctic Circle

Begin your journey by sailing out of Kangerlussuaq Fjord (Søndre Strømfjord), a 190-kilometre-long fjord surrounded by mountains and glaciers.

Cross the Arctic Circle on your way and spend time on deck watching for aurora borealis.

Kangerlussuaq, the settlement at the head of the fjord, is a former US Air Force base and Greenland’s primary flight hub.

After your charter flight from Toronto, ON, you’ll transfer to the Ocean Endeavour by Zodiac.

Day 2 Kangerlussuatsiaq Fjord | Take a Zodiac Cruise at the Foot of a Glacier

See why Kangerlussuatsiaq lives up to its Danish name, Evighedsfjorden, which means “the fjord of eternity.”

Marvel at this complex coastal waterway that includes calving glaciers, sheer bird cliffs, and streams cascading against a towering mountain backdrop.

Explore this sublime glacial landscape by ship and by Zodiac.

The waters here are relatively warm, due to the West Greenland Current and the subarctic location.

Day 3Nuuk | Visit Museums, Shops, and Cafés

Stop in at vibrant Nuuk, the capital of Greenland.

Visit the Greenland National Museum, one of the city’s many outstanding features, where the world-famous Qilakitsoq mummies rest.

The old harbour includes many buildings dating from Danish colonial days, while contemporary Nuuk is known for art, shopping, pubs, and cafés.

Day 4At Sea — Davis Strait | Learn On Board

Deepen your understanding of the environment, cultures, and history of the region as we steam across the Davis Strait towards Labrador.

Enjoy workshops and presentations, watch a documentary, and get out on deck!

Keep your binoculars ready to spot whales and seabirds who follow in our wake.

Day 5 - 8Torngat Mountains National Park, NL, Canada | Hike the Mountainous Tundra & Spot Wildlife

Spend four days exploring an area of treeless, mountainous tundra in Torngat Mountains National Park, where some of Canada’s highest peaks east of the Rockies are found.

Enjoy your time hiking, visiting archaeological sites, and Zodiac cruising. Here, Inuit of Nunatsiavut will be your guides in their spiritual homeland.

Be on the lookout for marine mammals, polar and black bears, caribou, falcons, and eagles.

Day 9Hebron | Ponder Poignant History

Step back in time to the historical site of Hebron, which preserves a Moravian Mission station dating from the 1830s.

Call in at the old church, which is where Inuit who resided here in 1959 learned they would be forced to relocate.

Take a moment to read the plaque that commemorates this history and the apology to people affected by the relocations, issued by the government of Newfoundland & Labrador in 2005.

Listen to the stories shared by our guides and meet former Hebron residents and their kin who continue to visit the site and to hunt and fish nearby.

Day 10Nain | Experience Inuit Culture

Visit thriving Nain, the most northerly community in Labrador and the administrative capital of Nunatsiavut.

Stop in at the historic Moravian church, enjoy the vibrant brass band, and visit Illusuak, the stunning new cultural centre.

Expect a warm welcome and the opportunity to peruse plenty of arts and handicrafts at this dynamic visit.

This will be your first chance to see trees since the start of your journey!

Day 11 -12The Labrador Coast | Enjoy Hiking & Zodiac Cruises

Explore the southern Labrador coast, where you’ll find a diverse geography of coastal barrens, high subarctic tundra, high boreal forest, mid-boreal forest, string bog, and islands.

Choose the activity you prefer during expedition landings in this beautiful and quiet region.

Day 13L'Anse aux Meadows | Immerse Yourself in Viking Archaeology

Wander through the reconstructed Viking habitation at L’Anse aux Meadows, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the only authenticated Norse settlement in North America.

Learn more about the archaeological remains that date to approximately 1000 CE, and how—amazingly—the site was first found here in 1960 by a close reading of the Viking sagas.

Be sure to visit the superb interpretation centre and meet the actors in period costumes as you make your way through the reconstructed Norse-style sod buildings. This is a must-see for any visitor to Newfoundland and Labrador!

Day 14Eastern Newfoundland | Visit Picturesque Villages & Charming Communities

Look forward to a characteristically warm Newfoundland welcome upon your arrival in the picturesque villages and unique communities that dot the rocky shores of the northeast coast of Newfoundland.

Have your camera at the ready—photographers will have their work cut out for them capturing all the special charm of classic island communities and rambling coastlines.

Day 15St. John’s, NL, Canada | Wave a Fond Farewell

Welcome to St. John’s—the vibrant capital of Newfoundland and Labrador.

Complete your journey by sailing into historic St. John’s harbour, looking out for Signal Hill as you enter the world-famous Narrows.

Photograph the charming houses of the Battery, always a hit with shutterbugs.

Say your farewells in this cultural hotspot and what is sometimes called North America’s oldest city.
